Since submissions are reviewed anonymously, author names should be removed from the article, including running heads, references, and notes. The document should be US letter size, and page numbers should appear at the top right of all pages after page 1. All parts of the article must be double spaced, with 1" margins. Photographs or illustrations should be numbered and sent as separate “supplementary files” in the online upload system, with the desired location clearly indicated in the main text. All photos and illustrations should be submitted as separate TIFF image files with image quality of at least 300 dpi. These should be accompanied by captions, credit lines, and secured permission(s) for reprint, and their desired location should be clearly indicated in the main text.
Manuscripts and reviews should be prepared following the MLA Handbook (Eighth Edition, 2016). An electronic file prepared in Microsoft Word is required for publication. Notes and list of works cited are to appear on pages at the conclusion of the article. The Journal is committed to a policy of nonsexist language; authors are urged to keep this in mind. The editors reserve the right to alter phrasing and punctuation in articles and reviews accepted for publication.
The Journal of Film and Video focuses on scholarship in the fields of film and video production, history, theory, criticism, and aesthetics. It is receptive to articles of 12-35 typewritten pages about film and related media, problems of education in these fields, and the function of film and video in society. The Journal does not ascribe to any specific method as long as the article sheds light on the way we view and teach the production and study of film and video. We ask that the purpose of the article be clearly stated, that its evidence be related to its purpose, and that its conclusions flow from the evidence provided. All articles represent the views of their authors and are not necessarily those of the Journal of Film and Video or the University Film and Video Association.
